Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

Triumph motorcycles partnered with the latest Gotham City based DC Comics movie to utilize their Speed Triple RS in a multicolored diamond harlequin pattern across the bodywork.

Wooded Valleys

My kinda hump day view…

.. wish I was on a gravel road through the Rockies with the occasional arboreal vista across blue layered slopes.

Biz

The Adventure of Johnny Biker

In the late eighties comics evolved from pen and ink drawing to full blown painted illustration blowing the mind of impressionable readers. One of the greats at this effort was British artist Simon Bisley who transformed: the ABC Warriors; Slaine with his Hornéd God series; Dredd & Batman graphic novel; Lobo; and this one from 1992’s Dredd Megazine. a combination of fantasy artist Frank Frazetta; secessionists Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele; and Marvel Comic artist Bill Sienkiewicz.

Evening Ride

We took the Triumph out for a sunset jaunt into Lake County. Long shadows across green fields and through leafy woodlands. This was one of the small gravel country roads that can be found off Hunt Club Road.

Stars ‘n’ Stripes

All the Gear All the Time

Seven years ago today I was sworn in as an American. In hindsight perhaps I should have been wearing one of these for the duration under the political adventures we’ve been through…

It’s a small world…

The model is for all intents and purposes complete. Spent the afternoon adding oily and muddy patina to the bike. Looking like it’s just been ridden from the Normandy beaches to the Ardenne.

Blue Sky

Red Barn

Marvelous day on the road today. 250 miles on a route around the bottom of the Lake into Michigan on lanes lined with trees leafing out. Lilac fragrance wafted from farm hedges laden with bloom and rolling fields being watched over by soaring hawks. This old barn was seen in the small town of Eau Claire MI.

Cats Eyes

Most Illuminating

The Big Kitty got a pair of auxiliary lights affixed to it today. Added brightness down the road ahead and better conspicuousness in traffic. They are genuine Triumph accessories so once plugged into the bikes harness a switch, which until now wasn’t operational, gives easy control of the new lighting.

Scaled Down

Progress on the model kit.

The 1/9th scale Triumph Kit is coming along a treat.

Put that in yer pipe

…and smoke it!

Not tobacco my friend; but a fine desert sled with a pair of rumbling exhaust pipes sat like an organs middle C. Pull all the stops out and hear it roar! ‘72 Triumph TR6
